The Mini Detox Guide

This mini detox tips article is a part of my Wellness Spring Training series, a FREE 3-part workshop that’ll help you discover the secret sauce to losing weight, gaining energy & fueling your passions this spring.

( Download your free workbook towards the bottom of the post. )

Have you ever wished you could hit the reset button on your body?

Maybe it’s because of all the junk you ate last weekend. Or throughout the holidays. There are days I wake up bloated and blemished— and know I need to make a change in my diet.

A whole foods detox is a great way to kick start a new season in your wellness journey. Sometimes my clothes just get a little extra snug, I’m tired no matter how much sleep I get & I’ll crave junk all day long. These are some of the symptoms that our body could use a gentle reset. I create the detox guide to make it easy & affordable on you.

How do you do a healthy detox?

A mini detox can be completely natural (and effective)— yet it’s gonna take some work on your end. You can’t just buy a magic pill or sip tea all day long if you really want to treat your body to a health detox. As good as that sounds, our body needs fuel to thrive.

Now, I know what you might be thinking about a detox…

….because I was too. But that’s NOT AT ALL what I’m talking about.

So stay with me.

When is a detox most beneficial?

According to research, people tend to gain five to seven pounds during the winter months. Why is this?

We don’t make our health a priority. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. We dive head first into holiday traditions (cookies, feasts & peppermint mochas), and bypass our healthy habits. Myself included.

The veggie tray is practically untouched while the cookie platter has been demolished.

No joke, this winter, I probably ate 100 cookies and guzzled more cups of coffee than I can count.

It was a special winter season with my family— and I’m all for that. Yet now that’s it’s warming up and I’m removing the layers of clothing– I am not thrilled with what I see OR how I feel.

I’m okay with devouring cookies over winter break because there’s always an opportunity for change… if we choose to accept it. And I’m ready— and have a feeling you are too.

The Spring Mini Detox Guide

I created this mini detox guide to get us out of the winter funk.

With this simple detox guide you can download for free, I’ll show you a few tricks I used to boost my energy levels and enhance my body’s overall performance. They’re simple, healthy habits that really make a difference.

Just like a car has to get an oil change to remove the gunk to run well… we have to remove the toxic buildup in our body so we can burn calories more efficiently, boost our energy levels and clear up our skin issues.

What exactly is causing our bodies to get outta whack? It has to do with the…

  • pesticides found on the produce we eat
  • hormones in the dairy & meat products we consume
  • artificial ingredients in the packaged foods we love

All of these things may not seem that big of a deal in small doses, because they’re not. Yet overtime or in large doses, they can cause build up and stress our liver and kidneys. We get tired easier. We’re more agitated. Our skin gets rashes or blemishes. Our digestive system is messed up.

These are some of the signs that your body needs an oil change… aka: a mini detox. If you’re nodding your head to this. Then download the Mini Detox Guide and take action TODAY.

    YAAASSSS. In April I’m being given permission after 8 mos of no green smoothies (sobs) and being on this stupid med. for my esophagus, to wean off the med and try to reintroduce the foods I cut out to heal that bad boy. So while morning tonic is still out (too much acidic first thing), I’m super excited about green smoothies again and I’m hoping that we’ll be making good progress on this shoulder injury and I can get that 20 mins of movement in too now that the ice is mostly gone. (It’s been a rough year).

    Love this detox, just a question, should the Morning Tonic Tea be taken on an empty stomach to work best?

  7. SGS Rawkstar Carissa

    March 22nd, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    Hey Sue,

    Yes you want to take the morning tonic on an empty stomach so it can wake everything up and get you started for the day.

    You can detox for as long as you feel is right but this is a one day detox.

    As I started to read you mini detox it brought a tear to my eye. I have abused and used this body never thinking consequences. Kind of like relationships if you don’t work at it it will become toxic, just wanted to say thanks for what your are doing I have been doing enough blending because of driving truck. There more to the story, maybe some other time. Again thanks

    Hey Doug,

    Thank you for sharing that with us. It really is crazy how we neglect our bodies yet we all do it. Sometimes we just need a little reminder to get back on track 🙂

    Is it really on whole inch tall of ginger? That seams so much. Maybe because I am not a big fan of ginger but I will try and drink the tea. Also can the ginger be reused the next day or do each day I need to use fresh ginger? I feel like that would get expansive if I get up the tea.

    I am excited to do the detox. Thanks for putting together.

  20. SGS Rawkstar Carissa

    May 13th, 2019 at 2:10 pm

    Hey Claudia,

    Yes that is the correct amount! What I like to do is peal off the skin and cut my ginger into small slices and that is what you put into your tea. Once you buy your ginger root from the store, peal it, then cut it all up into slices and freeze in small ice cubes. That way you will not waste anything and your ginger will not go bad over time.

    Hope that helps!!
